Pain in left leg and arm causes. Conclusions.

A very pleasant case of "miraculous healing". Why was it possible? In addition to accuracy in diagnosis and choice of treatment methods, the short period from the onset of the disorder is very important. Which greatly increases the chances of its potential quick and complete reversibility. But, the longer the dysfunction existed, the more organic, irreversible tissue changes would appear.
Another point is that the symptoms in the leg also went away after treatment, suggesting that they are directly related to the dysfunction of the above-mentioned departments.
